In this paper, we analysis and simulate the AODV and OLSR routing protocols for both Wireless Ad-hoc Network and Wireless Mesh Network. An Ad-hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have recently gained a lot of popularity due to their rapid deployment and instant communication capabilities. WMNs are dynamically self-organized, self-configured and self-healed, with the nodes in the network automatically establishing an ad hoc network and preserving the mesh connectivity. Routing in both networks are nontrivial due to highly dynamic nature of the nodes. During simulation we consider three metrics i.e delay, network load and throughput of both networks.
